"The British government will reportedly begin rolling out 32 million 'booster' vaccines by next month to all those over the age of 50 in an apparent attempt to stem any winter wave of the Chinese coronavirus.
Pharmacies across Britain will begin a campaign in September of offering a third shot of a coronavirus vaccine to people with immune deficiencies as well as those aged over fifty years old, it is claimed.

And again, the variants will play a key role.'"
